Calling all film buffs
In a normal year attendance at the Sundance Film Festival is limited to an exclusive group of 1700, or so, biggies from the film industry.
But this is NOT a normal year.
This year the Sundance Film Festival is open to all U.S. audiences.
Yes, that means YOU & me.
The Sundance Film Festival that takes place in the upscale, remote ski town of Park City, Utah has shifted to a mostly virtual program with limited in-person events at satellite locations.
The 2021 Festival that takes place January 28 through February 3, is available for tickrt holders to watch from their living room couch, home theatre or even on an iPhone.
